I am virtualzing a physical server for which I need to set the SCSI/SATA drive serial. It is comprised of 12 " " spaces then 8 letter/digits. If I exclude the spaces, the drive serial is not accurate. If I include the spaces I get the following error.
error: Failed to start domain test1
error: internal error: driver serial ' ABCD1234' contains unsafe characters
